Israels ambassadör i Sverige Isaac Bachman skriver på sin Facebooksida:
UNESCO – A MUCH NEEDED SWEDISH-JEWISH VOICE, TO SET THE HISTORICAL RECORD STRAIGHT!
The outrageous second vote in UNESCO this week, to deny the historical ties between the Jewish people and the holy places of Jerusalem – an unprecedented act of the falsification of history – rightly has caused an outcry throughout the world. Jewish communities across the globe have expressed their disbelief and outrage in the face of such a scandalous injustice, including here in Sweden.
In his excellent letter on behalf of all Jewish communities in Sweden, questioning the Swedish abstention, Chairman of the Central Jewish Council of Sweden Aron Verständig, delivers a spot-on reaction to the true issues at hand.
